Tarot of the Hidden Realm (Llewellyn, 2013). It's rather funny, as last week we had the Eight of Wands followed by the Eight of Swords, also on Monday and Tuesday. Busy starts to the week...
This card certainly feels powerful and dynamic! Look at the way her bright, red hair blows in the wind, and the tension on the bowstring as she holds her arrow knocked. She looks determined, and very focused, in a quite different way to yesterday's character on the Eight of Pentacles. Her focus is much more outward, on where she's aiming rather than on the tool in her hands. Her dark dress and fiery hair give her a rather fierce air, yet there also seems to be a calm awareness in her eyes. Altogether, I like her a lot.
What I see in this is the need to choose our goals carefully today, and line up our arrows to accomplish as many of those goals as possible, in as short a time as possible :)
So, another day of working through a long to-do list, I think. Still, this card reminds me that if I am passionate about things, I can get a lot done.
I am grateful for the reminder to prioritise.
